Miss Sadie has been walking a bit stiff lately. This morning she was extremely stiff all of a sudden and came in from outside shivering. She laid down and shivered in the hall way. Shivering is a sign of pain or fear I believe. Hubbie took her to the vet first thing this morning. The vet examined her and felt along her spine. The vertabra down near the tail is herniated. They also call it slipped disk syndrome. She is to take Rimydly twice a day and be a couch pototoe for at least a week. The vet says that after a few days of Rimydly she will feel better but will have flair ups. The vet said it is an orthopedic problem, not neurological. They did x-rays. We got to see the vertabra with the problem, it is the one that meets the tail. She is not showing any neurological signs of impairement. We trust our vets. She is bright and happy, but very stiff and isn't real happy about having to take it easy, but too bad. We don't want her to injure herself further.
